Satisfaction Guaranteed

 

If you’re not satisfied with your purchase for any reason, you may return it for a refund of the purchase price to your credit card or exchange it with another product within 30 days of receipt (excluding harmonicas and In Ear Monitors). Depending on product availability, items may be exchanged for another item of equal value (excluding Fender Mod Shop instruments).

Returns & Exchanges

 
WHAT IF I RECEIVE A DAMAGED OR DEFECTIVE PRODUCT AND WANT TO RETURN IT?
 

A damaged or defective product may be returned or exchanged for the same or a like product. Fender will provide a prepaid shipping label to cover send and return freight costs. Products are considered damaged or defective at the reasonable discretion of Fender and require a Return Authorization (RA) number to receive a shipping label.

Aside from reported damages or defects, all returned items must be in their original condition with no signs of wear, damage, dinging, or scraping and include all original packaging, manuals, warranties, accessories, etc. (if applicable).

 
WHAT IF I AM SIMPLY NOT SATISFIED WITH MY PRODUCT AND WANT TO RETURN IT?
 

If you are not satisfied with your purchase, you may return it for a refund of the purchase price or exchange it for the same or a like product (excluding harmonicas and In Ear Monitors).

Fender will issue a prepaid shipping label to minimize your return cost. The cost of shipping your returned item back to Fender will be deducted from your overall credit or refund. If your purchase was eligible for free shipping, the original shipping cost of the product(s) returned will also be deducted from your credit or refund.

All returned items for change of mind must be in their original condition with no signs of wear, damage, dings or scrapes and include all original packaging, manuals, warranties, accessories, etc. (if applicable). Returned items not adhering to this policy may be subject to a restocking/handling fee.

Mod Shop Policy

 

Due to the personalized nature of Mod Shop, we cannot cancel or make any changes to any Mod Shop orders once they have been placed. All sales are final. If you receive a defective product, please contact us at [email protected] with details of the product and the defect. All defective products are subject to the Fender 2-year Electric Guitar and Bass Warranty.

Returns Procedure

 
How do I make a return under Fender's policies?
 

All returns under our store policies require prior authorization from Fender and a valid Return Authorization (RA) number. Items returned without a valid RA number will be returned to you. To make a return under our policy:

 
  1. Contact the Fender Gear Advisors team at (800) 856-9801 or email us at [email protected] to obtain an RA number and a prepaid return shipping label.
    1. If calling, please have your order number ready, as well as the name on the credit card used in the transaction.
    2. If emailing, please include your order number as well as the name on the credit card used in the transaction in your email.
  2. After receiving your RA number and return shipping label, place the merchandise in its original packaging and apply the shipping label to the box, ensuring that the RA number is on the label.
  3. Drop off the package at any FedEx shipping location or schedule FedEx to pick up directly.

How to Order

 

Ordering online from Fender.com is easy! Simply choose the items you wish to purchase and add them individually to your shopping cart. Each time you add an item, you'll be able to view the entire contents of your cart and order subtotal. When you are ready to checkout, click the “View Cart” button and proceed to the secure checkout area. When ordering online, your credit card will not be charged until your order has shipped.

Please note that this does not apply to Fender Mod Shop orders. As Fender Mod Shop instruments are built to order, your credit card will be charged when your order is placed.

 
International Orders

While we truly appreciate your interest we are only able to accept orders and ship to customers in the United States at this time. Fortunately, most items featured on Fender.com may also be purchased from local Fender dealers in your country or region. Please contact the Fender Distributor in your area for help finding a store or dealer near you.

 
Pricing, Payments & Taxes

All prices are in U.S. Dollars (USD) and are subject to change without notice. We currently accept VISA, MASTERCARD and AMERICAN EXPRESS credit cards for online purchases. When you order through our secure online shopping cart, we do not charge your credit card until the date we ship your merchandise to you.

Please note that this does not apply to Fender Mod Shop orders. Payment for all Fender Mod Shop purchases will be processed when your order is placed.

All orders are subject to verification and acceptance before shipping. Local sales tax is applicable in most U.S. states. Sales tax is calculated at the local tax rate of the shipping address.

Please note that we currently deliver orders within the United States only.

 
Security

Fender has implemented Transport Layer Security (TLS) technology, one of the most robust encryption platforms available. Your credit card information will be encrypted from the moment you enter it until your transaction is processed. A browser in secure mode will display a URL address beginning "https://" rather than the standard "https://". The "s" stands for "secure."
